Re: Questions re: weaning before 1 year :(
Sigh. It's always the teachers and the nurses who seem to have the hardest time finding time to pump. ALWAYS. I completely understand why you're contemplating combination feeding at this point. The fact that you got your LO to 8 months with EBF is wonderful!
To answer your specific questions:
- Yes, it is possible to maintain some sort of supply even when feeding just 2x per day. However, the supply in question is likely to be quite small. Do you co-sleep with your baby? Night-nursing while co-sleeping might allow you to squeeze in several more nursing sessions per day, and maintain more of a milk supply.
- Bumping baby's wake-up time should not be a problem- babies are adaptable. Try it and see how it goes!
